3 Bedroom Cottage Under Offer

Shop House is exactly as it sounds, the old shop that served the village for many years. Knowing this then explains how the facade works as clearly at one point there was a display window to the right side and the main door into the shop next to it. Today it's a fine and comfy home exuding all the lovely character we expect from a village home! But more than most, it also prioritises great living spaces so the accommodation is unusually roomy. In addition, it's also really light so the overall positivity is excellent throughout. There is also potential to change it around for a variety of uses. The current study sits next to a large utility room, ideal for conversion to an annex if desired. And the timber store could equally lend itself very well to conversion into a home office. It all adds up to something both charming and also practical to a wide audience. Come and have a look...

Let's bring you in via the door most used, under the veranda/ open porch to the rear. Swing back the thick timber door and step down onto a lovely chequerboard tiled floor. Follow down to the left and you will reach a cloakroom, beautifully fitted with modern fixtures, and very stylish. Next door on its right the utility room is quite a surprise. An oil boiler and hot water tank feed the heating system, including underfloor heating. Its generous space easily accommodates a chest freezer, washing machine etc and there’s even a Belfast sink with timber worktops and drainer either side. Move back to the hall and the first of the reception rooms is a study with a beautifully patinated timber floor, it’s a delightful room and the wide sash style windows to the front overlooking the lane provide both wonderful light and a pretty view. The ledge door to the front leads out into the lane, hence this can be a separate access if required. Continue down the hall into a huge dining room with a locally quarried limestone floor, where the current table with ten chairs is pretty much dwarfed by the space! A wood burning stove has been fitted to one wall and opposite two more large sash style windows flood the room with light. Walk through the rear door and you’ll enter the kitchen. At some 35 feet in length, this is a stunning space. To one end an exceptionally generous suite of units combines with a pantry cupboard, coffee maker, range cooker to provide a very effective and stylish kitchen. Then to the other end, a large breakfast area sits perfectly placed to take advantage of the garden and terrace behind through a pair of glazed doors. It’s such a great space you could easily house a very generous table here in addition to a Welsh dresser, bookcases, even a sofa without feeling restricted. We rarely come across the kitchen this large anywhere! And from the breakfast area you walk through into the most characterful part of the whole house. With exposed stone to 3 walls and beams overhead with a deep fireplace the central focus, this is a gorgeous living room. More oak plank floorboards underfoot combining with the beams overhead to give this room such great warmth. But it’s also just as light as the rest of the house, as it is double aspect (with more glazed doors to the garden), hence at any time of day the light throughout is excellent.
